About the Author

ELIZABETH TUCKER is Professor of English at Binghamton University. Her previous books include Campus Legends: A Handbook (Greenwood, 2005).


"Tucker's overview of child lore contains much valuable analysis. She flourishes at categorization of play mode, thought, and genre. Her models disclose a postmodern truth-a child milieu that can be charming, ribald, coarse, and disturbingly violent. In text and photograph, the underlying psychology reveals an aggressive, competitive survivalism blended with aspects of a universal spontaneity of whim and fancy. Succinct passages, 54 glosses, and ample bibliography over a broad historical span make connections with child consciousness essential to the homeschooler, teacher, researcher, and student of early childhood education, psychology, sociology, or literature. Tucker extends research to multiple races. . . . This volume is highly recommended." - ARBA
"When you need the perfect resource on children's folklore for the teacher or parent in your midst, or perhaps something to springboard a student fresh to the field, this succinct and excellent book on children's folklore serves as a ready reference and portal." - Journal of Folklore Research
